    ARCHER: NO, we don't. Our encounter with the virus was an accident. one that you could have prevented.

    ARCHER: Ask us. Talk to us. Just like you're doing now.

    HOSHI: Talking is a limited form of communication for us. We're much more advanced than humans.

    ARCHER: Not from where I'm standing. Maybe you've evolved into beings with abilities I can't comprehend, but you've paid a hell of a price. You've lost compassion and empathy. Things that give life meaning. And if that's what it takes to be advanced, I don't want any part of it.

    (A/N: Well said, Jon.)

    HOSHI: We're leaving now, Captain. You won't remember a thing about our presence. And in three hours, you'll die as well.

    HOSHI: Are you defying me?

    (A/N: Gotta love Ascended beings, even high and powerful they still got a lot to learn.)

    "TUCKER": I'm defying the entire protocol. What Archer has done today, his act of compassion, you've never witnessed that before.

    (YAAASSSSS :biggrin: )

    (@mattman8907: And the junior Observer here, Ayelborne as I see him, is the wiser, more open-minded one. No wonder he ends up the leader in "Errand of Mercy." Plus the case that Archer makes, still choked up with grief, but so impassioned. Saves his whole crew right here.)

    ARCHER: There's another way. Experience compassion for yourself. You want to know what it means to be human, you need to do more than observe.

    ARCHER [OC]: Archer to the Bridge.

    ARCHER: Well, you'd better get down here because he's talking up a storm, and so is Hoshi.

    PHLOX: You're all completely free of the virus. It has to have been a delayed reaction to Commander Tucker's radiation treatment, but how it spilled over to you and Hoshi, I have no explanation.

    T'POL: Obviously, the pathogen's behaviour is more unpredictable than we assumed.
